Manual on How to Come up with Critical Thinking Essay Topics by Yourself


A critical Thinking essay looks easier than they are. Do not be fooled, because these essays say a lot about what you have learned, and how you think. These are usually done in upper level classes, to see what you learned, and how you are processing the information. So the essay is open in many aspects, but used to rate your ability in your studies.

  • Source of essay
  • Assess the points
  • What sources can help
  • What type of topics should you pick
  • Source of essay
  • First of all, find out what the source of your topic is about. Because the source can be; your class studies, a book, or even a research done by someone. You must find a topic within those grounds and be very fluid about it. Be sure you can write a fully comprehensive work on that topic.

  • Assess the points
  • Look over the points that the instructor wants covered. This will give you an idea on where to look for your essay topic. If they want covered a subject you covered in class, then look for the key authors of the subject. Also look at other points as well; major people who helped develop it, issues that led to it, interpretations of the causes. If it was a book that was read, then look at the author, and what issues and points they covered in the book.

  • What sources can help
  • Sources that can help would be the library, as this is a great resource for books, periodicals, and videos. Use these from both your school library, and public library. They will have different material to choose from. Also the internet, look up accepted source sites, usually a .ed, or .org will have the best. A few .coms are also good, but make sure of the source they use.

  • What type of topics should you pick
  • The topics to work with should always be something that you can go into detail about. The more of an opinion you have, the better the topic. Remember that this is to evaluate your critical thinking skills. It does not mean you have to agree with it; it means you must have a good and solid view of it. Make sure it is something you can express yourself fluidly with. Also make sure it is something you can back your views up with. It does not matter that your view might be a minority. It matters that you can show a solid foundation and why you think the way you do.
